    World-class trout fishing: Rio Chimehuin

    The Chimehuin River is the most famous of all Patagonia Trout Rivers. The Chimehuin is ground zero for traveling fly anglers in Patagonia since 1960. Spanning 50-miles from Lago Huechulafquen to the Rio Alumine, the best place to fish the Chimehuin is the private access water of Tipiliuke Lodge on the Estancia Cerro de los Pinos.

    What's Included?

    Enjoy the most exclusive lodge in Rio Gallegos, situated just 5 minutes from the river. Stay in  one of five private suites, dine on locally-raised beef and lamb prepared by the Lodge Chef, and relish the curated wine selection during your stay.

    Rio Collon Cura & Collon Cura Lodge

    To fish the remote private water, the best water on the Collon Cura, clients stay at Collon Cura Lodge. From mid-January to mid-March, small bait fish migrate into the Collon Cura and the trout feed on them voraciously. Mixed with inch worms and evening caddis hatches, the Collon Cura can produce some incredible fishing. The lodge is not as charming and picturesque as some, but what you are buying here is location, location, location.

    Arroyo Verde

    Arroyo Verde is an elegant lodge located on the Traful, the premier landlocked Atlantic salmon river in Patagonia. The river runs 10 miles through the valley, and it has some of the most spectacular views of any Patagonian river! Record fish are an 18-lb. salmon, a 16-lb. brown and a 23-lb. rainbow! The lodge, which is a traditional estancia in a magnificent Andean valley, was called by Forbes Magazine: “the finest fishing lodge in the world, period!” Three or four days at this unique lodge, wading this marvelous river, will challenge your fly-fishing skills, and invite you to contemplate the extraordinary scenery.

    Filo Lodge

    Filo Lodge, located on the Filo Hua Hum River, takes just 8 clients at a time. This elegant lodge is located in a spectacular remote setting, which ensures privacy and little angling pressure. The Filo Hua Hum, a tributary of the Caleufu River, runs for approximately 7 miles between two lakes and offers fantastic dry fly fishing, beginning with dragonflies in January. This river holds fish that average 16-20″, up to 10 pounds! Much of the fishing is sight fishing. This is not a place to catch great numbers of trout, it’s a place to stalk and catch several good sized fish a day, that are used to looking up and taking dry flies.

    More about Tipiliuke Lodge and the famous Chimehuin

    Nine miles of the Chimehuin River and seven miles of the Chimehuin’s top tributary, the Quilquihue, create more than 16-miles of private access to ideal trout water that flows though Tipiliuke’s property. The Chimehuin is a moderate grade freestone river that can be compared in size to the Madison or Yellowstone Rivers. The Chimehuin has an amazing variety of waters, most allowing fly fishermen to easily wade the cobblestone riverbed while sight fishing for wild Rainbow and Brown Trout averaging 16 – 20 inches with fish in the 21 – 24 inch range being common. There are trophy trout available, up to 30 inches, that can be specifically targeted with streamers or large attractor style dries. While streamers and nymphs are effective, the Fly Fishing Andes guides’ passion is catching trout on dry flies.
    Alberto Cordero with a nice Brown Trout landed on a dry fly.

    The Quilquihue is a smaller river than the Chimehuin with a steeper gradient creating faster currents, which is more challenging to wade. The Quilquihue offers excellent dry fly fishing, trout of surprising size, and lots of shaded water. In addition to fishing the Quilquihue, there is a man-made spring creek that runs through a pasture on the property and joins the Chimehuin. The creek was created from an underground channel of the Chimehuin, a pond, and an underground spring and has been evolving into an unique and reliable fishery since it was completed in 2006.

    Tipiliuke Lodge is one of the premier hosterias in Argentina and is a favorite among trout fisherman staying in Patagonia. The lodge is set in the heart of the 48,000-acre Cerro de los Pinos’ Estancia (ranch) at the foot of the Andes mountain range and conveniently located near the city of San Martín de los

    Andes (12 min. drive from Chapelco airport). Tipiliuke’s luxury accommodations, excellent food, and personalized service makes the lodge a great place for non-anglers as well as fishermen.

    Tipiliuke LodgeThe Estancia includes a number of buildings: Tipiliuke Lodge, old barns, a chapel and several family houses, which are beautiful and unique in their traditional and rustic Argentine architecture. Tipiliuke Lodge has 9 comfortable bedrooms for 18 guests (each with a private bathroom), a living room, dining room and cozy bar. While the lodge can accommodate 18 guests, they limit the number of anglers to a maximum of 10 anglers at any one time. Tipiliuke Lodge offers 220-volt electricity, domestic and international telephone service, complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access, authentic refined cuisine and knowledgeable personalized assistance.

    Tipiliuke Lodge is surrounded by a 15-acre tree sanctuary with close to 2000 different species of trees from all over the world and miles of the Chimehuin and Quilquihue Rivers. The sanctuary creates an oasis of shade in the barren basalt hills of the surrounding area. Guests will often enjoy their lunch outside, surrounded by the trees’ shade. The closest pool is only 600 yards from Tipiliuke, making fishing during the mid-day break or the evening rise on the Chimehuin an easy walk from the lodge.
    Natural and Immitation Dry Flies

    Alberto Cordero and the Fly Fishing Andes staff of guides have extensive experience fishing the private-access water of the Chimehuin and the Quilquihue on the Estancia Tipilikue. These professional English-speaking guides are experts taking the rivers browns and rainbows on dry flies, as well utilizing nymphs and streamers for big trout. Combining the fabled rivers and top guides from Fly Fishing Andes with the accommodations, food, wine and setting of Tipiliuke is sure to create a truly unforgettable experience for anglers and non-anglers alike.

    Included in the rate: Pick up and return to Chapelco Airport in San Martin; daily guided fishing; accommodations; all meals, wine and non-alcoholic drinks during meals, open bar with assorted national liquor and beverages, use of the lodge’s private access waters, internet access; fishing license and taxes.
